The White House influenced: Zelensky could soften his position on negotiations with Putin, – Politico

The White House could influence the softening of the position of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky on the impossibility of negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Politico writes about this, citing two sources.

At the beginning of the week, Volodymyr Zelensky called the conditions for negotiations with Russia – the restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine, punishment for war crimes and reparations. Unlike previous statements, he did not mention the need for Putin to leave the presidency before the talks.

Zelensky's position, according to the interlocutor, could change a few days after the talks between Kyiv and Washington, as well as the visit of Joe Biden's national security adviser Jake Sullivan to Bankovaya.

Officers from the White House did not directly tell Zelensky and his aides about the need to soften their position. They only conveyed the message about the need for Kyiv to demonstrate its readiness to reasonably and peacefully end the war, the newspaper writes.

Biden hopes this will show the world Ukraine's desire to end the war, not Russia.

“This does not mean that they need to sit down at the negotiating table now. We don’t even think that now is a good time, based on what Russia is doing. But they must show a willingness to resolve the conflict. No one wants this conflict to end more than Ukraine “, – said one of the officials.

Former US Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor emphasized the reasonableness of Ukraine's 5 conditions for peace negotiations with the Russian Federation. They comply with international law and will make Russia pay for the crimes, the diplomat noted.

“We've seen Putin come to terms with reality. Russia has gone and rejoined the grain deal, softened nuclear threats. But real talks probably won't happen until Moscow “suffers a few more military defeats,” Taylor said.

The United States should not now publicly push Kyiv to the negotiating table, said Kurt Volker, a former special envoy for Ukraine.

“Putin obviously has no intention of seriously negotiating or accepting Ukraine's terms. Putin is determined to continue fighting and strike at Ukrainian cities. Ukraine needs to resolutely win and win back the territory. The United States must help the Ukrainians do this as quickly as possible,” Volker emphasized.

Zelensky had previously signed a decree refusing to negotiate with Putin. This was the result of the signing of agreements on the annexation of the occupied Ukrainian territories.

Focus previously wrote about the readiness of the United States to talk with the Russian Federation because of the threats of China.The Americans cannot allow the union of these two countries, experts are sure.
